Treasures of Ancient Egypt

Series Overview

If you think the treasures of Ancient Egypt are just gold, gaudiness and pyramids, think again. In this epic, visually stunning adventure through Ancient Egypt, journalist and art critic Alastair Sooke follows on from his hit series Treasures of Ancient Rome, tracking down the treasures of the longest-lasting civilization in history and uncovering the true story of their rise and fall through the ages. Stepping aside from the well-worn cliches of this era, he discovers how Egypt's unique melting pot of geography and culture created some of the most remarkable treasures the world has ever seen.
